Well-Re-diggers Become Well-Carriers
Our nation’s religious history is full of men and women of God that carried wells of revival and evangelism. From Jonathan Edwards and John Wesley to A. A. Allen, Kathryn Kuhlman and Billy Graham, we have noted well-carriers. Well-carriers are those with deep revival and evangelism wells in them who are not afraid to go splashing around wherever God takes them. Miracle signs and salvations and healings follow them. Notice that most well-carriers comfortably ministered outside of the established church. Tell the Lord you are willing to go wherever He sends you. Let’s re-dig those revival wells in America and become well-carriers!
“He dug out the wells that had been dug during his father Abraham’s lifetime. The Philistines had filled them in after Abraham’s death. He gave them the same names that his father had given them.” (Genesis 26:18; GWT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Tell the Lord that you want to be one who re-digs the revival wells of our nation’s past.
Learn who those revivalists were and remind the Lord as you pray: Billy Graham had a well of mass evangelism, A. A. Allen had a well of healing, and William Brannan had a well of miracles flowing. Here is a good list to get you started.
Say to the wells, “Come alive!”
If there is a capped well in you, cry out to the Lord to uncap it! Be specific in your request of the Lord and get ready to walk in it – outside the walls of church buildings!
A prayer you can pray:
“Lord, we re-dig the wells of healing. We decree that the wells of healing begin to rise forth and we say to the wells that A. A. Allen dug, begin to come forth! We tap into the wells of William Brannan and Billy Graham. Begin to awaken in Jesus’ name! We say to those wells, “Come Alive!” Signs and wonders and miracles! Mass evangelism! We tap into those wells right now. We tap into the wells of miracles and of the prophetic. We pull that movement from the 50’s into today.” (Ken Malone)1
We will plow in prayer until we have re-dug the wells of revival from our nation’s past!
